Each year around the time of the Patriot’s Day holiday, the Museum is proud to display the Lexington Alarm letter drafted the morning of April 19, 1775. It alerted the colonies that war with the British had begun with the shots fired on the Lexington Green. This historic manuscript supports the claim that the skirmish in Lexington was, indeed, the principal event that launched the American War for Independence. Before the Museum acquired it, the Alarm letter had been privately held for more than 200 years.
